Pro

A president that has ideas stretching towards both left and right can solve issues through seeing both points of view
FREEDO

Con

First I'm going to assume that we're talking about US presidents.

Second, I'd like to point out that president Ronald Reagan had one of the largest approval ratings of any US president while in office and was extremely far from being a moderate.

Third, I will point out that my opponent has the burden of proof. I need prove nothing but rather negate supposed proofs.

Pro

yes, ONE. of the highest. However, in today's world, there are more radicals of the left (who rarely speak fondly of Reagan's presidency) and right and a president which reaches out to both would be able to solve issues concerning both
FREEDO

Con

Sorry but that's not very much of an argument. A shaky opinion at best. What proof do you have?

Also, president FDR, on the complete different end from Reagan, had one of the highest approval ratings of any president while in office. He is the only president to have ever been elected more than twice. In-fact he was elected 4 times.

History doesn't seem to serve you justice.

I have to say that, though I agree with the ideology presented by Pro, Con provided a good foundation, as well as solid evidence for the debate.

I believe if there were more rounds, this could've been a really good debate. All we got was a shaky opinion from Pro, and solid evidence from Con. =\

that was a mistake.

I suppose you proved me wrong on this one, not my best thought for debate
